C&C 3 Problem!

by darrylmcintyre / March 11, 2007 12:10 AM PST

I just downloaded the C&C 3 demo. When i try to run it, it shows a screen with an error which causes my laptop to reboot. Is there anyone with this problem. Please, help me.

System specs would be nice, but just based on the limited info you gave me, it sounds like a problem with either Direct X or your graphics card.

Hmmm, I'm not sure if your graphics card can run C&C 3. Do you have all your drivers updated for your graphics card? Did the demo install direct X? Try installing the demo again to see if that works, but as far as I can tell, you have to be using an ATI 8500 series graphics card or higher to play C&C Tiberium wars.
